of homeland security, janet napolitano, and she explained why getting help has taken so long. >> we have been prioritizing getting generators to places like hospitals and nursing homes where the needs are greatest. places where, for example, our first responder cars need to be able to fill up with gasoline so they need pumps there, generator pumps to pump the gasoline so the fire trucks and police cars still operate. so that has been the focus for the first couple of days. >> the situation here, though, still dire. right now the death toll just on staten island alone, 20 lives, many expect that as this recovery effort continues, the death toll is only going to increase. >> david lee miller with the harsh reality on staten island tonight. the storm destroyed many businesses up and down the coast and there's no telling yet how many people are out of work as a result. but the feed to released the final monthly employment report before the storm. it shows companies added more than 170,000 jobs last month, but at the same time the unemployment rate ticked up from 7.8 to 7.9%. probably the reason,
janet napolitano plans on surveying the area today. >> gretchen: tragic photo of that mother with her husband who went for help and apparently people did not help her when she tried to find the kids . she rode out the storm outside. you would think that the politicians and president and mayor of new york, it would be rescue mission and getting these people back to homes and getting them fed, nope, instead unbelievablably the new york city mara thon goes on sunday. most important picture on the cover of the new york post the gen rators are putting electricity to tents in central park instead of the entire area of staten island or long island. that area has no power or home or shelter, nothing. >> steve: it is here in new york city and streets of midtown are fill would of people who are here for the mara thon that is here this weekend. and politicians said why didn't they cancel it. we understand millions of dollars come in the city. but still, we have people in the water in new york city. it is the worst storm to ever hit new york city, eric, why is it going on? if rudy guiliani was th

napolitano and craig fugate and john brennan. the follows some of the briefings the president has been getting over the weekend. he also went over to fema headquarters where he had a chance to get a firsthand glimpse of what the federal government was doing to stay on top of this hurricane. again, the president promising that the federal government will help states in any way possible, as you know. so far, eight states have been declared states of emergency by this president, including the district of columbia. and that frees up some federal dollars to help them not only during the storm but also in the clean-up effort. >> dan, we're still a week away from a national election. this is not going away. what about the early voting? what about the efforts of people to do the in-person early voting state to state? >> reporter: well, obviously that is a concern. not only on the voting end of it but these are key battleground states that the president really wanted to be in in these final days before the election where the race is neck and neck. so you pointed out, the president was supposed
